A twilight sedation removes the painful guarding from debilitating chronic conditions and interrupts muscle spasm and pain cycles. It also offers other important functions including sedating the pain perceiving nerves that have been irritated due to the dysfunctional spine or joint. This sedation allows complete muscle relaxation so that the doctor can stretch shortened muscle groups and reduce adhesions caused by scar tissue.
The manipulation and stretching techniques of MUA, procedures once used independently, are now combined with excellent results. Together the two elements can result in increased joint motion, improved functional abilities and decreased pain. Following your MUA procedure will be a therapy program to prevent future pain.
